What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a former Associate Lecturer, I wanted to provide a simple and understandable introductory text covering the main schools of Western Philosophy – I wanted it to be educational but also very easy to understand.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters (e.g Socrates, Plato, Marx, Sartre) have contributed greatly to human development through their philosophy, so that was easy!
